This historical thread concerns the devious political policies employed against the Irish people by Pope Benedict during the struggle for Irish independence against the British usurpers and how religion was abused by that pope to foster loyalty to the British Crown.So you are saying the Vatican should take its orders from the PIRA Army Council who murdered nuns and who taught the FARC narco terrorists to murder Colombian Catholics. The Catholic Church gave Ireland its schools and hospitals. PIRA kidnapped and mutilated people. The Tans murdered at least three priests. You have probably never heard of Archbishop Croke, Archbishop Thomas Walsh or the Provo priest from Crossmaglen as TO'F was called.
Ireland, with the exception of a few decades ending with Down's first all Ireland win., has been an irrelevance to the Catholic Church. There are more Catholics in England than in Ireland. And then there are a chunk of them in Poland.
If the Catholic Church wanted to help Ireland, it would refuse access to all Sinn Feiners and their sprogs.
